"The main purpose of this website is to provide reliable information on urological diseases - unbiased, comprehensive and clear. All the materials published here take into account the existing scientific evidence, the experience of medical experts and nurse practitioners, as well as the views of the patients.
This website is part of a patient information initiative run by the European Association of Urology (EAU), an independent non-profit organization which works to advance the level of urological care in Europe."
As an association aimed at professionals working in Urology, we are unfortunately unable to answer any individual patient questions. Our sister organisation, the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS), has develop a comprehensive resource for patients covering a range of urological conditions to help answer questions.
